Move over, bright hues, there’s a new color basking in the summer spotlight: butter yellow.

This soft, pastel shade is emerging as the hottest trend of the season, gracing everything from runways to red carpets and even our fingertips.

Forget the boldness of canary yellow – butter yellow offers a more approachable and universally flattering option.

Buttery hues in beauty

Leading the beauty mood board is none other than supermodel Hailey Bieber – she has consistently been  spotted in butter yellow manicures.

Why is it the colour of the year?

What makes it so special? Firstly, it’s incredibly wearable. Unlike bolder yellows, this shade flatters a wide range of skin tones, making it an inclusive trend. Secondly, it exudes a sense of effortless chic. A buttery yellow dress screams summer day dream and can be the easily worn head-to-toe without appearing to be OTT. On the other hand, a pop of this shade in your look in the form of an accessory or shoes can cut the monotony.
